Survey on Traffic Management in Data Center Network: From Link Layer to Application Layer

Weihe Li, Jingling Liu, Shiqi Wang, Tao Zhang, Shaojun Zou, Jinbin Hu, Wanchun Jiang, Jiawei Huang
2021 IEEE Access  
Compared with traditional networks, data center networks (DCNs) have unique features, such as high bandwidth, low latency, many-to-one communication mode, shallow buffered switches, and multi-root topology  ...  To alleviate the high overhead of large flows detection in Hedera, Mahout [41] monitors large flows at the end-host side. The host utilizes a shim layer to monitor the socket buffer.  ...  Nevertheless, the end-to-end feedback delay based on host-based load balancing is generally too large to adapt to the highly dynamic traffic, using at least one round-trip delay to perceive global congestion  ...
